$62,000 raised to fight hunger

This year’s Benefit in the Barn was a record-breaking event! With 850 people in attendance and the support of our generous donors, we were able to raise $62,000. The proceeds will go to fight hunger in our communities. The Delaware Hunger Alliance and the Hope Center will use these funds to ensure our neighbors don’t go hungry. Thank you to Jim and Mary Rodman of We Feed U Farms for being our hosts.

Benefit in the barn wouldn’t have been possible without many supportive sponsors. The Delaware County Foundation was again this year’s Presenting Sponsor. Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram – Delaware and Honda Marysville sponsored the dinner portion of the program.
